I want to kiss the stars
I want to wonder why

They were placed so high

among the sky

I want the moon to touch me

I want it to gracefully say

“Please don’t leave me.”

“Don’t go away”

I’ll have to explain how I need to breathe

and among the stars, 

I cant do this, you see

So the moon and stars would climb down

From the sky

and in a field on purple flowers

we all would lie 

But there’d be nothing to see

So we’d stare at the dark 

That’d be okay

Because I’d never be apart 

I’d never have to leave such beauty

It’d be with me always

and I’d be lost when I looked at everything around me

it’d put me in a daze

I’d name the stars 

all of them

separate names

and we’d all be friends

I’d sit on the moon

and I’d tell stories to the stars

I’d eventually name the moon

when I was old and eager too

and when I was about to die

I’d whisper “goodnight moon.”

Tears would fill my eyes

as my moon and stars were left behind

I’d kiss the stars and they all might wonder why

I’d peacefully fall into a sleep 

They all might begin to weep

When they realize what actually happened to me

and even though my body cold

and even though my heart no longer beating

the moon would sit beside of me and hold my limber hand

and the stars would blanket over me, 

one by one they’d land. 

But for now they’ll stay among the sky

and I’ll stay on the ground

and until the day I can kiss the stars

That’s where we’ll be bound.
